Make Christmas memories at the Governor’s Mansion

Get ready to experience lavishly re-created period décor and an impressive array of live holiday music during two special “Christmas Memories” events at the Governor’s Mansion State Historic Park, 1526 H St. in Sacramento, on Saturday, Dec. 8 and 15 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Surrounded by docents in period costume, mansion visitors will be transported back in time to the very place where 13 of California’s early governors and their families lived, spent Christmas seasons and shared holiday traditions.

Then-Governor Edmund G. Brown and his family were the last first-family to celebrate Christmas in the stately mansion.

To add to the festive activities, Mr. and Mrs. Claus will make special visits to the mansion to meet excited little ones and be available for holiday photographs.

Cost is $6 for adults, $4 for youth (ages 6-17), and children 5 and under are free.

For more information call 916-323-5916 or go to parks.ca.gov/governorsmansion.

Beginning with Governor George Pardee and his wife Helen in 1903, the stately Governor’s Mansion State Historic Park served as the home of 13 California governors and their families until 1967, when then-Governor Ronald Reagan and wife Nancy became the last to live there. Operated by California State Parks with financial assistance from the non-profit California State Historic Governor’s Mansion Foundation, the Governor’s Mansion is open Wednesdays through Sundays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. except Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day.
